    The Old Post Office was ideal for what we wanted. It is rural so you had to drive everywhere. No nightlife apart from the sounds of animals etc. Very tranquil. Lovely pub a mile up the road serving excellent meals. We all had a lovely week.

    We had a very nice week at the Old Post Office. We tried some of the walks - not always with success, but some were really nice. We got to see a lot of the nice Kent countryside - as well as good space for having friends over for dinner.

    Lovely comfortable cottage but no pub in the village anymore. It is a little bit out of the way but lots to see in the surrounding area. Certainly, a very comfy cottage with plenty of room.

    Comfortable and well equipped. Needs some serious general TLC, dripping tap, kitchen cupboard doors, a good declutter of draws and cupboards, some serious overhead cobwebs. Garden also needs ''tidying''. However, a lovely place to stay with plenty of room for couples or families. Would recommend to other friends.
